I totally agree with cat, this would need much thought to get a “definitive” list. That said, here are 10 games that I think are worth our time.
- The Story of Thor/Beyond Oasis
- Streets of Rage 2
- Shinobi III
- MUSHA
- Comix Zone
- Golden Axe
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist
- Earthworm Jim 2
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Road Rash 2
Special mention to sports games (this is the Genesis after all :D): FIFA 96, NBA Live 96 and ATP Tour

Good list. I also really dig Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Sonic the Hedgehog, and this badboy...

Only thing disagree with is Phantasy Star 2, which is just horrible to navigate the dungeons without a map. It always felt rather generic and weak to me.

In no real particular order:

- Shining Force
- Sonic 3 & Knuckles
- Rockman Mega World (A SMB All-Stars style collection of MM1-3)
- Gain Ground
- The Lion King
- Comix Zone
- High Seas Havoc (A slower Sonic style game; works better than expected)
- Ristar
- Out of this World World (Preferably the Sega CD bundle w/ the sequel)
- Shinobi III

Shining Force is still one of my favorite SRPGs of all time but I still have never finished it. Need to at some point, I guess I can add it to my eternally growing list.

Time is money. I have to read emucasino review and play few games afterwards. Now I know a lot about those bonuses. Maybe it's time to get those spins. I think it is.
